Episode Twenty-One: "Who Wants to be Press Secretary of the Cuban Missile Crisis?"

RHODA: Mary, you're not going to believe this. Dana Perino doesn't know what the Cuban Missile Crisis was.

MARY: Do you even need a high school education to work in the White House? What's next -- the Justice Department hiring Regent University Law School alumni?

RHODA: She's the Press Secretary of the War on Terror, Mary. You could say "Cuban Missile Crisis" and you might as well be saying "Rumblefish Spinning Top Hi-Fidelity Lunar Module."

MARY: Dana Perino suspects it has something to do with Cuba and missiles.

RHODA: She had to ask her husband when he got home.

MARY: The reality of history has been replaced by the publicity of history.

RHODA: How does an adult maintain any kind of self-respect if she starts a conversation with, "Honey, what was the Cuban Missile Crisis?"

MARY: Darling, can you tell me about the nuclear showdown that almost annihilated the planet in 1962? But would you please keep the noise down low? Because you're waking the lazy sunbathers --

RHODA: If the bombs fall, Mary, you and I will be obliterated in a flash as Dana Perino is escorted to a bunker with hand-picked survivors who will rebuild what's left of the world.

I KNEW she was that girl who had a negative score for FINAL JEOPARDY and Alex said he "was so sorry to see (her) go" because he so clearly wanted to bone her. I think she answered "The Mayor of Castor Oil" to one of the literature questions. Or as they call you in the Bush family: "gifted."

Dana's not gifted. She's special.

'Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb' is still one of my all-time favorite movies. They had the babes all picked out for the bunker.

I like it when cats come to visit.
